Getting around NSW

Road and rail networks are some of the most common modes of transportation between various cities and attractions found scattered across NSW. Public transportation along main transport routes in major cities are quite efficient but if you are looking at covering the more remote areas of the state you might want to consider the option of hiring your own private vehicle so you can all make stops according to your own tour plans. This would sure give rise to the perfect adventure tour to Australia you all will enjoy.
